SEETIES In 2010, Erich Fisher used open data to create these maps. Tourist destinations, cities and places, change every year and it would be interesting to compare this visual research with an updated version. It would also be interesting to use these data and their visualisation to help mass tourism to spread in the territories with the mission on the one hand to make too touristy cities more liveable for citizens and on the other hand to promote places like suburbs, forgotten neighbourhoods or villages suffering from depopulation. “Tourists VS Locals” is becoming an increasingly important issue worldwide and we should learn to use creativity also to try to create possible solutions to this contemporary urban tension that someone call overtourism or tourismphobia. In this article you can browse through the gallery and discover more about “The Geotaggers’ World Atlas Maps – Locals & Tourists” project by data artist Eric Fisher.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Armação dos Búzios: more commonly known as Búzios, this fishing village – thanks to its over 23 beautiful beaches – has become a beloved place by vacationers. It’s located on the coast north of Rio de Janeiro, 177 km away from the metropolis. Here we tell you about it through a colourful street photo gallery by Patric Alfred Haroldo, enjoy! 🙂

WORLD ‘Mindless Crowd’ is a collage of drone footage combined with a voiceover from the 1960s. The short film examines the different patterns and various formations which human civilisation has shaped on the surface of planet earth. It therefore uses only one single perspective, the top view. A 4-minute film by German (from Nürnberg) director Jacco Kliesch. Be curious and watch it!

NORWAY ‘A Nordic Skater’ is a short film by Paulius Neverbickas, filmmaker with a big passion for action sports and camping in the wilderness, who’s always trying to inspire people to go outside and enjoy the beauty of nature. Exactly like in his last work featuring Per Sollerman, a photographer who has been skating on frozen lakes and fjords for the past 10 years, because: “It is rooted deep in our bones that we need to be out in the nature”. Watch this story!

BLACKBURN Through memories and reflections, the stories associated with three abandoned buildings and their modern counterparts are used to look at what unites and divides the people of this industrial northern town of England.

A 15-minute documentary commissioned by the Arts Council and directed by award winning London based director Liam Saint-Pierre (originally from Blackburn).
